I'm compiling a list of houserules from various sources for my "Weeknight Battletech" doc and I'm trying out this one for speeding up missile resolution:<br /><br />Cluster Dice<br />Instead of using the cluster table, roll d6 for each cluster fired. <br />On a 3+ that cluster hits.<br />If all miss then a lone 2 damage cluster hits.<br /><br />So an LRM 15 has 3 clusters of five, rolling 3d6.<br />If they get 2, 5, 6, then two clusters hit, each rolling for location and causing 5 damage. <br />If they get 1, 1, 2 then they only hit with a 2 damage cluster. <br /><br />SRMs work the same way but you're effectively rolling d6 for each 2 damage missile, with at least one guaranteed to hit. <br /><br />The spread of damage is pretty close to what's on the original cluster table.Chris McDowallhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/11717684225248546716noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-615826467198003068.post-14304286341092947632022-10-07T03:18:37.083+01:002022-10-07T03:18:37.083+01:00Favorite house rule for Battletech: When using mi...Favorite house rule for Battletech: When using missile pods (short or long range), for every one point you miss your target by, reduce the pod size by one and hit with it. (SR6 goes to SR4, LR20 goes to LR15, etc.) For every one point you beat your target number by, add one to your roll for number of missiles impacting. This gives missile pods a more forgiving "shotgun" effect, while mitigating the occasions when you max out your to-hit roll, but then botch the number of missiles impacting roll.McChuckhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10243337792601085456noreply@blogger.com
